Is this thing on?
Ah, good, it is.
Well, as I’m sure you all know (you do, right?) we’ve let a small group of 13 people into the game to start playing around and testing. This has been a great success, with many improvements being made to help improve the stability and experience while some other work is ongoing in order to bring over some more features. Thanks in no small part to these improvements, we’re bringing in another small (but bigger!) group to help with the process.
How’s 18 sound, making a total of 31 alpha testers? We’ve already picked those new people and let them know. If you weren’t part of the group this time, just hang tight while we tighten things up more.
And now for some feedback from our testers (They provided a lot of material for this part, but in the interest of not facing TLDR issues, I picked out a few comments. They can yell at me later.):
“I feel at home and the nostalgia is overwhelming!”
“Incredible!! I didn’t expect it to be identical to Glitch which it is.”
“(S)ome days there are no new bugs(yay) and other days there are quite a few, and often they cause reloads but it’s all part of the process.”
“It’s good to be there, to almost feel the heart of the Giants. Just like if I went through a portal that brought me in Ur a few glitch-years after the events that put an end on Ur. Back in a broken but fixable world, because we have the technology, we can repair it. A bit of a post-apocalyptic atmosphere, if you have the imagination.”
“Things that arent working yet, npc, and emblems, and such. I can’t do basic quests without simple ingredients like butterfly milk and grain.” (Regarding what’s annoying)
“Default Glitchen æsthetics. Bare, bald, grey, and not being naked. Generic! Although we could be wireframed. Generic might be good then, the pants are superfluous.” (Regarding what’s annoying)

Oh ! so excited to get home. I been away for quite some time. Miss UR
This is great! The more the merrier! Thanks for doing this, Kaiyon and everybody else on the dev team.
Ooo, yay more peoples becoming Glitchen! (or whatever we’re calling our new iterations…)
“the pants are superfluous” — but I remember the skirts were *fabulous*. Thanks for the alpha update!
This is great news. Looking forward to beta! (I doubt I’d be selected for alpha 🙂 )
So, so excited! I can’t wait to be home again 🙂
Hehe, I’m glad there’s finally a blog update. I don’t like not being able to talk to ppl about the alpha! xD
Cannot wait to be back there! Yay for the testing!
Im so glad this project exists. i thought i would never play a glitch-esque game again. so happy!
Is there a way to get considered for the beta? Once I saw the alpha comments I nearly cried. I can’t wait to return to Ur.
Really looking forward to logging in! Thank you for all your hours of hard work!
Thank you for the update!!! Every step is one step closer to beta! 🙂
So pleased to hear you are steaming ahead,can’t wait to get into the game again..Thank you for all your hard work..
Very exciting! Hurry up beta…
I hope beta comes soon. I’d never be selected for alpha. Wish I could be considered though.
How could one get selected for alpha?
I just discovered you! Can hardly wait for Beta! Here Be Monsters is fine, but I really miss Glitch!
I am still searching..I hope Eleven gets into Beta F A S T
18 more testers? Too bad that adding a prime to a prime does not yield a prime (with the exception of twin primes, where one of the primes is 2 🙂
My glitchy little toes are curling with anticipation! Every new thing you guys post makes me grin a little harder 😀
Holy crap so exciting, I’m freaking out right now xD. I loved glitch so much when I played it, and there have been a couple of attempts to re-create it using the downloadable content… but they seriously fall short in comparison to what you’ve shown on your youtube channel… wow, watching it was so amazing, like we can finally return home after three years xD Please keep it up guys, everyone’s so excited!!!!
This is so exciting and awesome!
Really wish I could play… But i’ll wait it out If I must… 🙂
Pinch me. Or nibble me. I don’t care. Glitch is coming along!
Tears just came to my eyes I just squeed so loud I scared my kitties. I. Am. So. Excited. Did I mention how excited I am? Well, I am. Excited, I mean.
can’t wait !! uugh.
Sounds awesome! (crossing fingers to be selected for beta)
Really hope you guys are able to work out all the kinks! I will be crying tears of joy when I see Glitch again 🙂

OMG THIS IS THE GREATEST NEWS EVER!!!
ty for acknowledging me for an e-mail, cant wait to join if new try outs happen.
I can’t wait! I’ll be back 🙂
This makes me so excited!!!! I miss lazy Glitch afternoons. Nothing before or since comes close to it.
All of the memories i’ve had with Glitch makes me awe and weep at the same time. I loved cooking Meat Tetrazzini, it was the most difficult recipe to make. I love the giant of Pot, I still do. Uncle Friendlies.. the auction frog.. I miss you all.
Please bring it back soon :<

I can wait to start playing again. Making lots of trees and giving them away.
So very excited to get started!
This is such a good game, I’m eager to get started again
